I was thinking about how cool X-Fest used to be. I went to probably the first five before it got bigger and started getting only radio rock bands. Those first few were really fun. The first two (I think) were at the Ritter Park amphitheater and had a really good atmosphere.

Maybe I'm getting old but all these canned, "modern" rock bands sound exactly the same to me.

If they would start booking more original artists, they could expand their audience and still sell out just based on their name. In my opinion...

Agreed, the early shows at Ritter Park had more diverse bands. Was Helmet, Barkmarket, and Chum an early Xfest? Not sure but that was a cool lineup. Can't stand the "radio" bands of today.

I definitely remember Chum. I'm pretty sure they were either there or at one of the Anniversary Parties. Those early shows had Candlebox, Gravity Kills, Stabbing Westward, a local band called Shindig and several other decent bands. Even though I wasn't a huge fan of any of those groups, I really had a good time watching good music.

I would like to see them go...not necessarily Indie but get some acts like the Black Keys or My Morning Jacket. Something with some originality and edge to it. Ya dig?

There is so much great "rock" music being made right now. I hate to hear the lineup for X-Fest every year because it's always the same crap. I think the promoters need to think outside the box a little and pump some life into it.

there won't be an x-fest this year because there was a ban on tatoo ink, hair dye, body piercing jewelry, body odor, cigarettes, black clothing, and budweiser.
